  1. Fox cubs Orphanage I am proud to announce that as of today the orphanage of helios after half a year of construction Is now opening its doors. We are now prepared to take in children from ages 0 to 17 During the orphanage's construction I have already been left with three infants one toddler and one ten year old. They were left at the orphanage over the past couple months. Potential parents are welcome to send me a letter to come visit children. I would like to reiterate that the purpose of this orphanage is to keep these children safe and sound, fed, and educated. In this mission we will now be accepting donations of materials, food and toys for the children. I wish to make their environment and time here as peaceful as possible. We will accept all children big and small so do not hesitate to bring any lost or abandoned children to our doors or send me a letter if you find one. Children are our future and they’re potential is boundless we must protect and guide them. Fox cubs orphanage is a place for them to grow and learn and just BE children. With that said I bid the people of Helious and Aevos a good elven year It is my hope that the fox cub orphanage becomes a safe haven for children all over aevos Signed, Aspin A. Munnel
  2. Orphanage of helious Over the years I have come to the realization that there are many needs in life. Food, water, education, and protection, The need that I come back to most tho is the same one i needed so long ago. A Home, A place to be safe and sound and away from all the dangers that Surrounded me. A place to come back to where there is always food and a bed. A place where I would be educated without having to worry over where I would go to sleep that night. I see a need for a place where Orphans, such as I once was, to be Protected, fed, sheltered and educated till they can be Matched with a set of Guardians or a single guardian who wants to build a family. Or until they have become adults and are then old enough to make their own homes. Therefore I am proud to announce the coming of an orphanage in Helios where all children that are lost, scared, alone, or hungry are welcome. no matter where they came from, who they are, or what they are. The First Orphanage of helious, Fox cubs orphanage, will accept them. the Grand opening of Fox Cubs Orphanage Will be announced as soon as possible. I will be building the orphanage with my own two hands. Once it is finished we will start accepting children Immediately. Signed, Aspin A. Munnel
  3. The Loving Maiden Orphanage Are you a child with no place to call home? Are you a lady of the night with a child that’s making it difficult for you to work? Are you a nobleman with a bastard you fathered with a cousin? If so come over to the Loving Maiden orphanage where all unwanted and unloved children are welcome to play and be free with other terrible mistakes and accidents! Located in Al'Wahkrah, along the path to the right of the stairs in the city square, housed in the old Mages Guild house, we house any and all children, feed them, provide them with a roof over their heads, for now we only take on children and do not accept adoptions for the time being of course. If you wish to be free of your heavy burden of a mistake, or have already been discarded of and wish to stay, simply come by or send a bird to one of the co-owners, Reginald and some unimportant employees. We have an array of caring and loving adults that look after the children and act almost like mothers and fathers to them, we are self sufficient, though donations are welcome. Disclaimer: The Lusty Maiden Orphanage is not responsible for any wrongdoings or laws broken by children currently staying under our roof. OOC: Application, simple enough it's just so we know who you are and maybe why you're interested in staying at the orphanage. IGN: RP Name: Age: Short Bio: Why you're inteterested: Skype (PM if you want): (( P.S, not gonna be a normal orphanage, if you pretty much want to be a normal orphan at a loving orphanage this most likely isn’t for you, but if you like interesting and fun rp feel free to come by, or make a post on this page, anything more and it’ll ruin the surprise. ))
  4. *flyers posted everywhere except Fi'ceru* "A new orphanage is to be opened up for all kids who need a home. Before it can be opened up we search for two to three people to work and live in the orphanage for us. Two must be great at combat for they will protect the kids from any danger that may lurk about. And the other, a reasonable person whom may cook, it does not have to be extraordinary food, just things that can easily be made for children. All three must be good with children, be patient, and cannot have a short temper. You will be paid one hundred minas each elven week, givin a living quarters within the orphanage land, and produce for you and the children. If you wish for this job please bird Arabella Delevoye OOC Info: Arabella's username is TheCheshireNeko and when you bird her for the job expect to be givin an application to fill out during the interview. I feel like the IC stuff is self explanatory. With cooking you dont need to be a high leveled cook, Cheshire's char is a chef and can make things for the orphanage when she has the time.
  5. Argus Tallesborne was born in Asulon to a simple family of farmers in Salvus. All was well in young Argus's life until he went to market one day with his dear mother and father. This would not have been a bad thing in itself were it not for the warband of Orcs that were waiting for them in the bushes nearby. In an eyeblink, the savage beasts leapt forth from their hiding places and butchered poor Argus's mother and father, revelling in the carnage. As Argus himself was about to be slain by the 10 strong pack of greenskins, he reached for the only possession he had to his name; his father's ornate sword. Strengthened by rage and a need for revenge, young Argus set into the group of burly Orcs, killing them all in a savage frenzy. The Orphaned Argus trudged home with his paren't bodies to an uncertain future. Thirty years later, Argus has devoted himself to hunting down and slaying every last Orc in the world. None would stand before the strength that his grief had- Wait, wait wait! STAHP! Are you saying that a simple farm boy murdered a 10 strong group of Orcs with nothing but his dad's sword? Aside from the probable lack of training this kid had, where did his father get the sword? I doubt that a farmer would be able to make or afford such a thing. And how would grief and rage fuel a murderous rampage through a heavily armed group of giant green warriors? More likely, little Argus would be paralysed with fear and grief, soil himself and be promptly dispatched. And then there's the Orcs themselves! LotC Orcs aren't the common pillage-and-burn variety - okay, maybe they are, but there's always a reason for it! Packs of Orcs don't roam the Orenian countryside looking for children to turn into orphans and farmers are slim picking compared to what they could go for elsewhere. Sadly, this type of biography is becoming more and more common. At least a good third of applications use these exact words: 'My parents were killed by Orcs'. These applications are almost universally denied, mostly due to the fact that they're flat out badly written, but also because the 'Parent-Killing-Orcs' story is so overdone that it borders on a ridiculous cliche. These cliches and many others can get your application insta-denied. Here are a few pointers on why they're so cringe worthy how to avoid them: 'My Parents were Killed-By-Orcs' Unoriginal - This has been done to death. Unlikely to happen - Orc attacks are surprisingly rare. Unlikely that your character would survive if they were present. Avoiding it: Consider having your parents still around, or dying of natural causes if you really want to play a parentless loner. If you want your parents to be killed by something try having it done by wild animals or maybe a group more relevant to your racial choice. An elf of over 100 years might have had their parents killed by the Undead in Aegis, or more recently, the Order of the White Rose, an anti-elf human knight group. Dwarf parents could be killed by cave-ins. If you insist on having your parents killed by Orcs, you'd better make sure it's well written and fitting with lore. Dwarves are the most likely to have their parents killed by Orcs due to their long blood feud, but even then it had better be well written. Parental Weaponry Unoriginal - Less so than being orphaned by greenskins, but you'd be surprised how many farm boys have ancient swords. Unlikely - Unless he was a soldier before he turned to farming, your peasant father is unlikely to have a treasured sword. Even if it's an older heirloom he wouldn't have the proficiency to train his child in its proper use. Avoiding it: If you have an heirloom weapon, make sure you spell out its history clearly in your bio. Is it your great-grandfather's sword from the days of Aegis? Was it won in a bet? Make sure you have a reason for your weapon. If your character is a peasant, consider not having an ancestral/parental weapon. Think carefully about their reasons for having one and if they don't make sense, don't do it. Orphaned Hero Being orphaned is a psychologically damaging ordeal, especially to a young child. Being an orphan is unlikely to inspire you to feats of greatness. In fact, petty crime and poverty is far more likely. If you were present at your parents' death at the hands of lawless brigands/orcs, why wouldn't they kill you as well? Avoiding it: If your character's been orphaned, write more about the emotional impact of it rather than a burning desire for revenge. Darkjames wrote up a wonderful guide on orphan RP in the Tutorials & Guides subforum. It has a few good pointers in it for those determined to play orphans of any age: http://www.lordofthecraft.net/forum/index.php?/topic/85832-orphan-creation-small-guide/ Mighty Warrior/Chosen One/Farmboy Rambo Unoriginal - Everyone wants their character to be special, but the best characters are often just regular people who fit nicely into the world. This is not an RPG - Conventional games lull us into a 'chosen-one' mindset, where we are on some all consuming quest that hordes of enemies can't stop you from completing. In LotC you are one amongst many, a single soul in a massive world. Rarely will the actions of an individual change the course of history. A simple lad raised on a farm all his life will be nowhere close to the sort of godlike fighter that would be needed to take on a mob of muscle-bound warriors. Playing an all powerful character is Powergaming. Avoiding it: Consider not creating a warrior. Many of the most interesting characters on the server are not soldiers but regular people carrying out their jobs and socialising. If you are going to be a warrior, make it clear in your application that you are not an all powerful hero. Instead of mentioning your unparalleled swordsmanship talk about how you were taught some things by an old friend once. Keep it simple. Well, I hope at least someone will read this and take note. No-one likes an application that's a carbon copy of half of the apps in the Denied sub-forum. Take some time with your application and have fund doing it. I hope this has helped and good luck with applying ^.^
